After her husband's stroke in 1712, Hannah began administering the affairs of Pennsylvania. She ruled in his name for six years, and, after his death, assumed full control over his property and the colony in her own right...the longest governance by any woman in the history of the British empire.

She was the daughter of Thomas Callowhill, a merchant.
